The Dead's enlightened taping policy also helped to cut out the taping for profit or bootleg syndrome that plagued so many bands.

I remember checking out some of the bootlegs of Zeppelin live in Japan or Pink Floyd etc... And as already mentioned the sound quality usually sucked. Deadheads taped as a labor of love not to make profit. It made all the difference in the world.

what tiger is saying, is that if you listen to the live audience recordings of other bands, you come away with a deeper appreciation, not only for the fact that the GD allowed taping of their live shows, but also of how deadicated and devoted the GD tapers were; those Floyd and Zep and Hendrix, etc. recordings, while you may find a gem or two no doubt, are far inferior to what deadheads are able to enjoy and appreciate; we as fans truly are blessed to have such a catalogue of excellent audience recordings for us to listen to and discuss; no other band from the same era has such a rich and widely excellent range of live recordings, and all available to fans; some excellent audience sources come from the likes of Vita, Wise, Zimmerman, Glassberg, Moore, McCue, Weinberg ... you can rarely go wrong if you see their names in the torrent
